The US coffee giant Starbucks is currently in talks with a number of potential joint venture partners and is in the process of finalising the locations for opening its retail outlets in India.

Starbucks' spokesperson T May Kulthol, speaking from seattle said the company is excited about the great opportunities that India presents to the company.

The company is looking at Delhi and Mumbai for its first retail outlets in India, while it was scouting for other locations as well for a grand foray into the country.

Starbucks plans to target the young adult of the country for expanding its presence into the country and also aims to reap the benefits of a growing coffee culture in a traditionally tea-drinking nation.
